A Utah bill that address re-calibration of the Advanced Drive Assistance System in the repair and replacement of auto glass has passed the Senate on March 2. S 120 was amended for the second time on the floor of the Senate and now includes language that insurers may not be required to pay more than a fair and competitive price for the local market area. The bill requires repairers of vehicles with ADAS to inform the customer regarding the calibration requirements for the advanced driver assistance system and whether the proper calibration will be performed; if the calibration will be performed, to meet or exceed the original manufacturer’s specifications; and if the calibration was not completed successfully, inform the customer that the vehicle should be taken to the manufacturer’s certified repair shop or other qualified repair shop for proper calibration and repair. The bill allows repairers not be limited to tooling or equipment dictated or recommended by the manufacturer’s procedures and specifications. An amendment to the bill added a requirement that repairers inform the customer of the amount of the repair that will be covered by insurance. The bill now moves to the Utah House; the Utah Legislative Session ends on March 12.
